You have got to be kidding, pk dload 20.31 Gb all p2p/nttp

So I get the email. I've breached the magic 20 Gb download.
Yes it says that on the counter but AFIK know only peak
p2p/nttp is counted ?

So why the [removed] am I being throttled at 20.31. Does this mean
I've downloaded nothing at all using http ?

So looks like +Net can't filter out p2p/nttp or make the rules up
to suit themselves. Question is wouldn't they have even bothered
emailing me if I hadn't raised a ticket.

Not to mention I've seen slow down before I got to 20 Gb.

Roll on the expiry of contract, 13 th June and counting.

Here is the ticket I got, names removed to protect the what ever
expletive you wish to use.

[Additional Information]
I am getting poor p2p speeds during peak hours. I am not on any mangement profile but I'm getting p2p speeds of < 10 kB/s. In parallel I can download a 120 Mb file at > 200 kB/s.

The p2p file I'm currently getting has 55 seeds, I have seen it deliver > 200 kB/s off peak.

So why am I getting such poor speeds during peak hours ?

Please don't ask me to run any speed tests as I can clearly download using http at > 200 kB/s.

There are two peak time figures on your VMBU; 8am -> 4pm & 4pm -> midnight. Is the figure of 20.21GB you quoted only one of the 2 peak time figures shown or the total for both. If only one then you need to add both figures to give an indication of usage for the period covered by the P2P management.

Remember P2P/Usenet?FTP peak time is 8am -> midnight and not 4pm -> midnight used for the SUP usage.

Remember 8am To 4pm only 20gb allowed until slowdown, what they forgot was you can only remember when they tell you. Feel free to rate your ISP here

Hi Peter,

I know there are two peak times. This was the total for both e.g.

10.7 + 9.6 = 20.3

Unless somebody can tell me different only p2p/nttp impacts your clean to
quota.

I wouldn't mind but I KNOW I have downloaded > 1.5 Gb of .avi from
rapidshare this month and that appears to use http ?

I have not hit my 20gb monthly allowance yet but am getting diabolical speeds with p2p. It seems to average at about 30 kbps even with say 50 seeds and 250 peers. No one seems to have a solution eventhough I posted a thread on here a few days ago. Usenet max's my connection out so it's definitley a problem with Plusenet.

The 20GB peak time allowance only counts Usenet and P2P.

tywyn - if there are 50 seeds and 250 peers you will not get good speeds, the seeds won't be supplying enough uploads for that number of peers to be able to download at a good rate.

Ah! Has "ftp" been removed from the "clean to" calculations?

Sorry, FTP is also included.

30GB is the level for SUP on a 2MB Premier account, 20GB is the "clean" allowance for 2MB Premier account. You can see the different levels for the different accounts here.
